Skimboard Rail Building: Curved Kicker

Ready for you and your skimboard to fly. Build a kicker. The main idea is that you cut out the sides of the kicker in the shape you want from plywood. You then use 2x4’s to connect the sides together and support the kicker. Cut out a rectangle that is the width of your kicker and the length of the top. Since the top of the kicker is curved, use a piece of string to measure the curved length. Attach the rectangle to the top of the kicker. Because it is curved, soaking the top rectangle piece of plywood in water for several hours will help it bend easier. If the curve is dramatic, use a thinner piece of plywood for the top (3/8” or 1/4" thick) for easier bending. Now attach the pvc. For help on attaching the pvc, see this post on skimboard rails.

Now get out there with your skimboard and "kick" it!!!
